SAVE PUBLIC TENNIS AT LAS POSITAS

495 Signatures Goal: 250

The City of Santa Barbara has given away Las Positas Tennis Courts for $1 per year to Elings Park.

Fees are scheduled to rise sharply from $150/year to over triple the amount to $495/year for a single membership
Elings, seemingly disinterested in managing the facility has turned the courts over to new  FOR PROFIT management. They will receive half of all of our fees and so far they have done little to improve the courts or programs in any significant way.
The current membership feels that this amounts to a privatization of public courts.
We want the City of Santa Barbara to schedule a City Council Meeting to review the best management practices for the courts to maintain the spirit of the lease.
LOW COST, PUBLIC ACCESS TO OUR PUBLIC PARK FACILITIES.
We feel a non profit management group, which we are offering to the park, is the best way to manage the facility in absence of City management.

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION STOP THE EROSION OF PUBLIC ACCESS TO PUBLIC OWNED FACILITIES!
